Brandon Jackson is a bespoke jewellery artist, creating and recreating natural forms with his individual and evolving style. He negotiates with natures’ design to adorn the human body, with inspiration deriving from the exploration and fascination of the natural forms found within the world. He believes nature brings endless design possibilities to develop further in the hands of artists.
The work for The Somme exhibition takes the fluidity found in nature, using tessellated bullet-like structures to create a unique silver bracelet. This is a reminder perhaps of the havoc wrought on the natural world during the battle, and that we are intrinsically bound to the world we live in. These bullet-like forms are reminiscent of thorns or teeth, but man has unfortunately excelled in the arms race that may lead ultimately to his own demise.
